Personal injury victims and their families often experience waves of misfortune. First an accident causes physical injury and possible property damage as well, then the victim must go through treatment or other healing processes, and then medical bills follow at a time when the ability to work may have been impaired.
The law firm of Kantrowitz, Goldhamer & Graifman, P.C. was founded over four decades ago upon a commitment to bring and artful legal representation to individuals, families, and businesses in New York and New Jersey. We bring that same dedication when representing the individuals and families who have been hit hard by someone else’s negligence.
Who is eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit?
A personal injury is a physical injury caused by someone else’s wrongful action. If you have injuries as a result of an auto accident, workplace accident, or a slip and fall accident, or if you have been seriously injured by a defective product or medical malpractice, you may be entitled to recover money for your losses. Consider speaking with a Bergen County personal injury lawyer or a Rockland County personal injury lawyer without delay because statutes of limitations restrict the amount of time you have to make a claim.
How do I choose a personal injury lawyer?
You would not choose a veterinarian to perform your heart surgery. In a similar way, you should choose a lawyer with significant and successful experience in the area in which you need representation.
While KGG offers representation in a number of disciplines, each of our partners focuses and specializes in specific practice areas. Under the leadership of Barry S. Kantrowitz, KGG has recovered millions of dollars for individuals who were the unfortunate victims of someone else’s negligence. Mr. Kantrowitz, a veteran personal injury attorney, personally supervises the day-to-day operations of our accident and injury practice as he has done for years.
Our team of personal injury lawyers has decades of trial experience and its members have represented victims for a multitude of accidents and injuries, ranging from moderate to catastrophic injury.

What kind of compensation is available for a personal injury claim?
The law recognizes the right of personal injury victims to be “made whole” through compensation. This can include reimbursement of measurable economic losses such as medical expenses, lost wages, and in-home services that the victim is not able to perform on his or her own, as well as payments for intangibles like pain, suffering, and emotional distress.
In some types of personal injury, like a premises liability claim that takes place on another’s property, the victim may be able to recover for all of his or her losses. In other types of claims, the right of recovery may be limited or altered by other laws. For example, New York and New Jersey have adopted no-fault laws that affect how claims are made and compensated.
Some injuries are eligible for workers’ compensation claims and this also affects how the claim will proceed.
